The Best Time to Schedule Air Conditioner Maintenance

If you have an air conditioner, it is important that you keep up with a regular maintenance schedule. Doing so can help to increase the component’s useful life as well as help it work at peak efficiency. When is the best time to schedule a maintenance appointment?

Spring and Fall Are Slower Times of the Year

As a general rule, A-1 Heating and Air Conditioning in Meridian and McCall are busiest during the summer months when air conditioning use is higher. Therefore, it may be best to schedule a service appointment during the early spring or late fall. During a service appointment, we can perform a system tune-up to ensure that it will be ready to go when you need it. We can also do air conditioner repairs or other maintenance that may be needed.

Schedule an Appointment at the First Sign of Trouble

Ideally, you will schedule an appointment the moment that you hear or see something unusual. For instance, you should call as soon as you see excessive condensation or when your air conditioner won’t turn off after an extended period of time. While these issues may not be a sign of a larger problem, there is no way to know for sure until an HVAC professional can take a look. However, by letting the problem go unchecked, it can result in a bigger problem in the future.

Don’t Hesitate to Schedule Service Appointments During the Summer

If you use your air conditioner frequently during the spring or summer months, it may not be a bad idea to have it looked at again in July or August. By scheduling your routine checkup a few days or weeks in advance, you can have someone take a look at it in a timely manner.
